'It's a Family Affair'

I'm not even sure my pronunciation of the name is correct! but I love the ethos of Abuelita Yarns a family run, yarn company. Specialising in producing a range of beautiful, 100% natural fiber yarns, which local artists in Uruguay, (where the Company is based), get creative by hand dying certain yarns in a kaleidescope of varying colours. The Spanish name 'Abuelita' means Granny and is reflective of their family values and respect for their culture. As an added testament to their certified commitment to the environment, they only produce yarn from healthy and well treated sheep. (Picture: Abuelita Organic Cotton: 212m: 4.5-5.5m Needle)
